About Functional HealthThe incidence of chronic disease is rising rapidly—it’s a red flag bearing the message that something important has gone awry! The reality is, most chronic disease is preventable, and much of it is reversible, but in order to effectively address it we need to think beyond immunization and early detection. Our integrated clinical team, comprised of a physician, nurse, nutritionist and psychologist are able to implement a comprehensive, individualised approach; addressing genetics, diet, nutrition, environmental exposures, stress, exercise, and psychospiritual needs, and based on emerging research.
